Hiya Podster, what you have is a stromanthe. The leaves are variegated and it's Ginger related too. Just beautiful foliage, and mine grow outdoors, heavily mulched in filtered shade. They do love water.
The more interesting one is the Triostar Stromanthe. with 3 colors. Red, white and green.
Thanks Gothqueen... after finding that it wasn't a ginger, I posted on the houseplant thread in search of an ID. I was given the Ctentanthe ID but although I had good intentions, I never found my way back here.
Sadly disappointed that it wasn't a ginger, I might add! Appreciate you... pod
You are quite welcome. That is an old "Pass-along" plant here, its funny but everyone calls it either a ginger, or a Ti leaf here too. What's even more humorous is that no one can ever seem to exactly remember when and where they got theirs, its like its "always been in the yard". I have one that is highly variegated, its a neat plant.
